Storytime ABC's actually refers to the things that I am hoping to share with you on this blog:
A is for Activities!
B is for Books!
C is for Crafts!
Connecting learning Activities, quality children's Books and creative Crafts is my intention but I am sure that there will be other fun things for us to share, too. I hope you will join in, make comments, and share your own ideas as together we explore the world of Storytime Fun!
There will always be many exciting things happening here!
In fact, I haven't even posted this first blog post and a friend has already suggested that I include Snacks for the S in ABC's. Hmmm... I do have some cute and easy snacks that go along with our Storytimes. Definitely something to consider!
Before we actually get started with a Storytime post, I would like to introduce you to one of my FAVORITE "helpers" at my Storytimes:
This is my Flannel board/Magnetic board that is with me at just about all of my Storytimes. It is a BIG one so that I can use it for my larger groups. It was a BIG investment but I have been using this one for over 10 years so it was well worth the cost!
If you are doing Storytimes for groups of children and don't have either a flannel board or a magnetic board, I really recommend buying one or making one. (I will give you some suggestions for a few cheap options in one of my future posts.)
If you are a parent, grandparent, or concerned adult who is interested in sharing learning activities and books with one or two young child in your life, I recommend using your refrigerator as your magnetic board. LOL! It works extremely well!
Now that I have introduced you to one of my favorite Storytime helpers, I will finish up this post and, hopefully, see you back here for my next one very, very soon!
Maybe in a future post, I should give you a little background on me and why I love Storytimes so much. Would you be interested?
In the meantime,
HAPPY READING TOGETHER!
